Meet Stephanie, The Redhead Roamer
Registered Nurse, photographer and local PEI enthusiast, Stephanie shares pictures of her wanderings and adventures on PEI as the @redheadroamer. From cultural and outdoor activities to kicking back with friends and family, Stephanie shows us how to celebrate Island life while balancing a demanding career in health care.
Recently, Stephanie teamed up with HealthJobsPEI to help us promote the benefits of a nursing career on PEI. With opportunities in ICU, ER, acute care and long term care settings across the Island, we’re sure we have the career you’re looking for!
Nurses make a valuable difference in the lives of Islanders by providing care to patients in our hospitals, comfort to seniors in our long-term care facilities, guidance to students as part of our school-based Student Well-being Teams and assistance to families in PEI communities. We have opportunities for new graduate and experienced nurses in ICU, acute care, and long term care settings across the Island.
